Anomalous Hall effect at room temperature in perpendicular Hall balance with a core structure of [Pt/Co]4/NiO/[Co/Pt]4 has been tuned by functional CoO layers, where [Pt/Co]4 multilayers exhibit perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. A giant Hall resistance ratio up to 69900% and saturation Hall resistance (RSP) up to 2590 mΩ were obtained in CoO/[Pt/Co]4/NiO/[Co/Pt]4/CoO system, which is 302% and 146% larger than that in the structure without CoO layers, respectively. Transmission electron microscopy shows highly textured [Co/Pt]4 multilayers and oxide layers with local epitaxial relations, indicating that the crystallographic structure has significant influence on spin dependent transport properties.
